Large bright white light speeding through the sky.
I live very close to the Las Vegas international airport and often look up at the planes flying over our apartment.
Was walking to my car when a plane flew over. I looked up at it and shortly after, a fairly large bright white light entered my field of view headed the same direction as the plane which was west, also the direction I was walking. It was not blinking, it had no streak and was moving about 3-5 times faster than the plane. It suddenly vanished as I watched it racing across the sky.
It was a perfectly clear night no clouds anywhere. I thought it could be a meteor but it was much larger than any I have ever seen and it left no streak as meteors do when they burn through the atmosphere.
